Stopwatch is set; we hear the ‘tick, tick, tick’
Geared up, raring to go, Hare is in training at the starting line, alert… waiting…
Who is the fastest, the best?
Old clock chimes; we hear ‘the tick and the tock’
Slowly does it, taking it easy,
Tortoise is planning winter hibernation, poised with pen and paper, pondering… resting zzzz
Steady as you go, steady as you go…
